Book Description

A clear, practical guide to programming example, with short programs to demonstrate each concept and technique, and longer programs to show how it all can fit together.
Pascal was designed to be a first language for students, and is still one of the best for learning how to write clear, well structured programs.
The author taught programming, in Pascal and other languages, for 15 years and has written many books on programming.

About the Author

Mac's first steps into computing came 19 years ago when he taught himself Basic on a ZX81. He started his first book shortly afterwards, when he realised that (a) programming was fun, and (b) no-one was writing simple books on it. Since then he has programmed in, taught and/or written about 9 varieties of Basic, 3 Pascals, 2 Cs, Assembler, Cobol and Java, 5 spreadsheets, 3 databases, 4 word-processors, and 6 operating systems. He is looking forward to the time when developers stop producing new software and books don't go out of date in a couple of years. Mac can usually be found either in the kitchen or running a taxi service for his family. He lives in Southampton with 4 children, 2 cats and 40 fishes.

More About the Author

P.K. McBride (Mac to everyone) was born in Lincolnshire in 1949. He studied Anthropology at UCL and after dipping into academia and social work, went into school teaching. In 1982 he discovered computers and began writing programs, and books about programming. In the 32 years since he has written something over 120 books on various aspects of programming, computer applications and the internet, and more recently has branched out into language books for house buyers, green issues and a ukulele tutor.
For much of the last 20 years he has designed and typeset his own books and those of other authors in the Made Simple and Teach Yourself series, finding as much pleasure in knocking other people's raw material into shape as in writing it himself.
When not at his desk, he can be found in the kitchen, out with the Southampton Ukulele Jam, or playing with his grandchildren.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book.. if your a student get it now! 20 May 2001
This book was an excellent read and further more an excellent reference book. Although I was not new to programming, I was new to pascal.
This book filters out the crap and really shows you what you need to know. If you are an a-level student needing help with pascal, get this book now.
It helped me to complete my project with ease.
With really great coverage of file organisation methods (serial, random, pointers etc) it really will help you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book to learn entry level programming 5 Sept. 2011
By Aj hams
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Already had the Book before purchasing from amazon from learning Pascal withinn College,Pascal is a old language which is not really in use now but it adapts the wannabee programmer to logicial thinking and getting used to Object Learning Programming. I would advise anyone to learn this who have never programmed before once you know how to write code you can move on to other languages such as C or Visial basic as most computer languages follow the same structure in coding and design in some form or so

It takes you through the steps needed to write simple programs and tasks an overall this and another book Learn Pascal in Three Dayslearn me everything to get a merit grade in my HNC course at college. But be pepared to be annoyed with the language because being a old language the IDE you use for programming can show no mercey when something goes wrong but in laymens terms thats what seperates a programmer from the rest

Overall its a good investment well worth the price
